In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the Nvidia Quadro FX 1400 are significantly better than the AMD Radeon X1050.

The Radeon X1050 was released over a year more recently than the Quadro FX 1400, and so the Radeon X1050 is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games when compared to the Quadro FX 1400.

Both GPUs exhibit very poor performance, so rather than upgrading from one to the other you should consider looking at more powerful GPUs. Neither of these will be able to run the latest games in any playable way.

The Quadro FX 1400 and the Radeon X1050 have the same amount of video memory, but are likely to provide slightly different experiences when displaying game textures at high resolutions.

The Quadro FX 1400 has 4.3 GB/sec greater memory bandwidth than the Radeon X1050, which means that the memory performance of the Quadro FX 1400 is marginally better than the Radeon X1050.

The Quadro FX 1400 has 5 Shader Processing Units and the Radeon X1050 has 4. However, the actual shader performance of the Quadro FX 1400 is 2 and the actual shader performance of the Radeon X1050 is 1. The Quadro FX 1400 having 1 better shader performance and an altogether better performance when taking into account other relevant data means that the Quadro FX 1400 delivers a marginally smoother and more efficient experience when processing graphical data than the Radeon X1050.

The Quadro FX 1400 requires 70 Watts to run and the Radeon X1050 requires 24 Watts. We would recommend a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Quadro FX 1400 and a PSU with at least 300 Watts for the Radeon X1050. The Quadro FX 1400 requires 46 Watts more than the Radeon X1050 to run. The difference is significant enough that the Quadro FX 1400 may have a slight adverse affect on your yearly electricity bills in comparison to the Radeon X1050.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewThe Quadro line of GPU cards emerged in an effort at market segmentation by NVIDIA. In introducing Quadro, NVIDIA was able to charge a premium for essentially the same graphics hardware in professional markets, and direct resources to properly serve the needs of those markets. To differentiate their offerings, NVIDIA used driver software and firmware to enable features vital to segments of the workstation market; e.g., high performance anti-aliased lines and two-sided lighting were reserved for the Quadro product. In addition, improved support through a certified driver program was put in place. These features were of little value in the gaming markets that NVIDIA's products already sold to, but prevented high end customers from using the less expensive products. This practice continues even today although some products use higher capacity faster memory.Radeon X1050 is an entry-level GFX based on the 110nm variant of the R300 architecture.
It's based on the RV370 Core and offers 4 Pixel Shaders, 4 TMUs and 4 ROPs, on a 64-bit of standard DDR2. The central unit runs at 400MHz and the memory clock operates at up to 333MHz. Expect a TDP of up to 24 Watt.
Radeon X1050 is not related to the rest of the X1000 Series GPUs due to being based on the R300 architecture and not on the R500. Its performance is relatively limited - even for DirectX 9 based games. As it's not based on a Shader-Unified architecture, both DirectX 10 & 11 games aren't supported.
